. the big mistaking that had people thinking they had gotten the bargain of the year. >>> but first, here are your options. resign or be fired. that is the ultimatum that was just given to nearly 200 educators tied to one of the largest school cheating scandals in u.s. history. it was just over a week ago, a state investigation revealed 178 teachers, including 38 principals, woulding at 44 schools cheated for students on standardized tests in atlanta. on monday, interim superintendent erroll davis replaced four superintendents and one principal in the atlanta public school scandal. now a letter has been sent to the 178 teachers, principals and administrators who were on the state investigative report as either confessing to or being implicated in the cheating. davis has ordered that educators resign by next wednesday or they will face termination. he says the culture inside the school district has to change. >> people failed children, they cheated. and we can't allow that to happen and we can't allow anyone who was involved with that to remain in our system. >> now, staff replacement may
to look at it. if i can dial out for a minute and give you a big picture perspective, despite this tit for tat and all this political spinning going on, there is still a meeting scheduled at the white house tomorrow, as far as we san antonknow, all sides are planning to come here and they will be discussing detailed spending cuts and for the first time, this discussion of tax changes. will there be revenue on the table, a major controversial issue. despite all this, there could still be potential progress towards one of these deals tomorrow. we'll see. >> you answered my last question. we'll check back with you later on. they might want to start with decaf tomorrow. >> let's go to our top story now. this is an important thing for all of us to be aware of. this in-depth look at the rupert murdoch scandal as it begins to reverberate in america. we thought it might and indeed it has. murdoch withdrew his bid for bskyb amid the most disturbing allegations that emerged. according to a british paper, journalists from the news of the world approached a new york private investigator to buy pho
said it was going to -- said it was going to. here's why it's such a big problem. because of speaker boehner, he said there's one major principle, you'll remember, jessica, as they moved forward to raise the debt ceiling, that the amount of the cuts be greater than the amount they raised the debt ceiling. and in this legislation right now is called for raising the debt ceiling by $900 billion, $850 billion, is less than $900 billion, so know that's a problem. policy aides are scrambling to try to rewrite the legislation to make their way forward. we know they're aiming for a vote tomorrow, but we don't know if they can promise it quite yet. we got a speaker from speaker boehner's spokesman, this coming from michael steele, in response, in reaction to the cbo, michael steele said we're here to change washington, no more spoke and mirrors or phantom cuts. we promised we'd cut more than the debt ceiling. as we speak, congressional, are looking at options to rewrite the legislation to meet our pledge. this is what can happen when you have an actual plan and submit all it really seemed to
's talk about some of the big issues right now. jobs, jobs, jobs. it's a crisis, a game of chicken going on in washington right now between the president, the did democrats on one side, republican leadership on the other side. how big of a deal is this august 2nd deadline for raising the debt ceiling? >> well, because i haven't been in government in a long time, i don't know what options the treasury department will have if the debt kreceiling is not lift. my guess is they can pay the bills for a while, after which they won't be able to. so if we let that deadline come and go and we really raise questions about when or political system is mature enough even to pay its bills, i think it's trouble. i realize the idea of voting against raising the debt ceiling has always had great appeal to people. even in good times, a bunch of people vote against raising it because it looks like a free vote. >> when he was senator, president obama didn't vote to raise the debt ceiling. he regrets it now. >> but, you know, when you're not president and you think the vote's there, seems like a freebie and y
, chrislhayes. rachel maddow is up next. >> any big plans? >> may light off a firework fmplgts they're illegal where you live, i won't tell anyone. >> just between you and me. >> exactly right. >>> thanks for staying with us the next hour. it is the start of a long fourth of july weekend. one of those days where if you are not on vacation already, you sort of feel like a sucker, because it feels like everybody else is on vacation. but even on a sultry friday night in july, heading into a long holiday weekends, there are two outstanding things that happened in american politics today. there is no relationship to what another whatsoever. i won't stremp and try to make one. we're going to do one of these stories and then the other. the first one is this -- >> conservatism is an act of creation and love. a love for a cherished way of life we have inherited and will bequeath to our children. conservatism is the ligation of ideology. we sent our mind to the world. not of the world to our mind. we'll move every mountain. we will meet every challenge and we will strive towards the light for the blosso
. hi honey! ♪ h-o-t-w-i-r-e... ♪ hotwire.com >>> no progress reported tonight on the big deficit reduction talks at the white house. with that, this warning tonight from moody's investor service. the federal government could lose its top of the line credit rating if the white house and congress can't agree on a plan to increase the nation's debt ceiling, meaning allow washington to borrow more money to help pay its bills. that warning came just a few hours after this sober math lesson from the fed chairman ben bernanke. since the government borrows 40 cents of every dollar it spends, a fall you'ilure to increase washington's credit limit would require a 40% cutback in spending. >> significant cuts in social security, medicare, military pay, or some combination of those in order to avoid borrowing more money. >> now that sounds ominous, but some conservatives think the catastrophe scenarios are exaggerated. >> if congress fails to raise the debt ceiling by $2.5 trillion, that somehow the united states will go into default, and we will lose the full faith and credit of the united s
, big or small, long term or short, simply is not going to make it through the house of representatives. you may think this is business as usual in washington. two sides pushing a crisis to the brink in order to get the best possible deal for their side. but jessica yellin is reporting that some of her sources are telling her that this is anything but a normal crisis. she joins us now. jessica, thanks. your sources are saying this is becoming an abnormal crisis. what happened today? >> reporter: well, there was a lot of process, sanjay. and a lot of discussion and still no breakthrough is the bottom line. we are less than two days away from the president's self-imposed deadline for a deal and still there is no deal. some on capitol hill, some of even the president's allies are saying this is now in their view time to cut bait and stop going for this big deficit reductions package they've been talking about and just find the easiest path forward to get the debt ceiling raised and worry about deficit reductions at another time. >> you know, it seemed like there was some enthusiasm and som
has to go that, would have a big devastating impact on assad. there is a sense in washington that not only is assad not going to reform, but the opposition is toughening up. yes, it's not united, but is persistent as every friday. soon not far away in august comes ramadan. during ramadan in august, every day is a friday. >> i realize these sort of repeated warnings from the u.s. give heart to the protestors, send signals to our allies in the region. i wonder if there is any down side to repeated warnings that don't have an "or else" to them. >> that is an interesting question. my sense of what's been reported out of the state department, they are reluctant to get specific to say assad must go because they do not think they have the capacity to get him out of there. they don't want the united states looking like a paper tiger with regard to syria. we had enough problems trying to get gadhafi to go. right now i think the united states is in a waiting game, trying to toughen sanctions, harden up the rhetoric, seeing if others will join and recognizing these protestors are not go
ceiling and pass that through the house. by 5, 6, 7 months depending how big the package is the bigger, the better. send it to the senate. the senate has to take it up they will have to pass it and the president will have to sign it. this will give us more time to work the problem and give a revenue neutral tax reform that lowers rates and cleans out a lot of the trash in the code. >> i am angry with republicans in this sense. we don't appear to have their act together. the president is putting his plan in writing on the table. this is frustrating to me. on the very day the house is voting on real substantive kutsz dealing with the foundational issues of our debt problem that would help bring recovery into play why did they give the president the ability to run out with a gang of 6? haehn hang on a second we have a plan and distract the country with what i thought they were focused on democrats were opposing it and we have to stop the measure with the o'connell issue. it's like they are negotiating with themselves and the president hasn't put up a plan. >> one of the members of the gan
the c. and he appeared to be picking up the votes. lesson to shawn duffy. >> is this as big as we wanted to go? heck, no. we wanted to go bigger. we ran on going bigger. but this is the only proposal on the table that accomplishes the goals that we set out to do. >> progress but apparently and this is why we have such a drama unfolding on capitol hill, not enough progress. the speaker is still short the votes. he's delayed the key vote, a key vote to not only if you are sitting at home, maybe you think the debt ceiling should be raised, maybe you should, it's a fundamentally important political showdown, some people think the speaker's hold on his job could be in jeopardy if he loses this vote. let's go to kate bolduan, do they believe they can twist enough arms to get enough votes to pass this tonight? >> reporter: fabulous question this evening and one that is very hard to answer at this moment. i can tell you, let me just give you the lay of the land what you can probably see a little bit of, john, you were talking about the speaker's office, it's right down the hallway, what we're se
they get a tax-exempt status? >>reporter: that is the big question is. any groups that a right, obviously, to form and criticize fox news. the question is, should that be a taxper, subsidized, tax-exempt deductibl activity. media matters is something called a 501 (c) 3 referring to the section of the code that covers it and deductions to media matters are people getting to take off their taxes as if they gave money to the red cross or salvation army. and media matters is increasingly political in recent years and the founder has formatted what is scale add super pac to raise large amounts of money to defeat republican candidates and there are reports that the white house is in the entirely happy with that because they felt he was more effective attacking fox news at media matters. the question is, should that be subsidized by the federal government. deep deep the deep pockets, obviously, george soros and tell us about his past for those that do not know. >>reporter: he is a billionaire, naturalized american citizen and has in the past been caught up in insider trading activity in jump, an
to get members to support. the big flaw in that plan he was on radio explaining it today. this select committee. who are the people? when are the cuts coming where are the cuts going to be? that was the flaw. all that aside. he's got another plan. the president has no plan. >> i was stunned they allowed the president to go to the east room by himself and give a partisan speech with no plan in place and calling on members of the public to call the members of congress. i heard today that calls were up but they weren't what the president wanted. it is saying don't cave. surprisingly the poll you just read 38% of the people who still think he's handling this well? that you don't have a plan that you can explain it. and ed henry now with fox news as a white house correspondent pressed today, pressed jay carney on why don't you have a plan? i can imagine how you explain why you don't. >> sean: we'll get into this in the next segment. it angers me now. that republicans are competing only with their own deal. the president gets to throw darts and say no, no, no. where is his leadership stuart
